Bravais Lattice There are 14 distinct 3D lattices which come under 7 Crystal Systems The BRAVAIS LATTICES (with shapes of unit cells as) : Cube (a = b = c, = = = 90) Square Prism (Tetragonal) (a = b c, = = = 90) Rectangular Prism (Orthorhombic) (a b c, = = = 90) 120 Rhombic Prism (Hexagonal) (a = b c, = = 90, = 120) Parallelepiped (Equilateral, Equiangular)(Trigonal) (a = b = c, = = 90) Parallelogram Prism (Monoclinic) (a b c, = = 90 ) Parallelepiped (general) (Triclinic) (a b c, ) 25-Mar-17

**Bravais Lattice The lattice centering are:**

Primitive (P): lattice points on the cell corners only. Body (I): one additional lattice point at the center of the cell. Face (F): one additional lattice point at the center of each of the faces of the cell. Base (A, B or C): one additional lattice point at the center of each of one pair of the cell faces. 25-Mar-17

Miller Indices The planes passing through lattice points are called ‘lattice planes’. The orientation of planes or faces in a crystal can be described in terms of their intercepts on the three axes Miller introduced a system to designate a plane in a crystal. He introduced a set of three numbers to specify a plane in a crystal. This set of three numbers is known as ‘Miller Indices’ of the concerned plane. 25-Mar-17

**Miller Indices Miller indices is defined as the reciprocals of**

the intercepts made by the plane on the three axes. 25-Mar-17

**Miller Indices Procedure for finding Miller Indices**

Step 1: Determine the intercepts of the plane along the axes X,Y and Z in terms of the lattice constants a,b and c. Step 2: Determine the reciprocals of these numbers. 25-Mar-17

9
**Miller Indices Step 3: Find the least common denominator (lcd)**

and multiply each by this lcd. Step 4:The result is written in parenthesis. This is called the `Miller Indices’ of the plane in the form (h k l). 25-Mar-17

**Miller Indices ILLUSTRATION PLANES IN A CRYSTAL**

Plane ABC has intercepts of 2 units along X-axis, 3 units along Y-axis and 2 units along Z-axis. 25-Mar-17

11
**Miller Indices ILLUSTRATION DETERMINATION OF ‘MILLER INDICES’**

Step 1:The intercepts are 2,3 and 2 on the three axes. Step 2:The reciprocals are 1/2, 1/3 and 1/2. Step 3:The least common denominator is ‘6’. Multiplying each reciprocal by lcd, we get, 3,2 and 3. Step 4:Hence Miller indices for the plane ABC is (3 2 3) 25-Mar-17

**Miller Indices Example**

In this plane, the intercept along X axis is 1 unit. The plane is parallel to Y and Z axes. So, the intercepts along Y and Z axes are ‘’. Now the intercepts are 1, and . The reciprocals of the intercepts are = 1/1, 1/ and 1/. Therefore the Miller indices for the above plane is (1 0 0). 25-Mar-17

**Miller Indices Problem # 1**

A certain crystal has lattice parameters of 4.24, 10 and 3.66 Å on X, Y, Z axes respectively. Determine the Miller indices of a plane having intercepts of 2.12, 10 and 1.83 Å on the X, Y and Z axes. Lattice parameters are = 4.24, 10 and 3.66 Å The intercepts of the given plane = 2.12, 10 and 1.83 Å i.e. The intercepts are, 0.5, 1 and 0.5. Step 1: The Intercepts are 1/2, 1 and 1/2. Step 2: The reciprocals are 2, 1 and 2. Step 3: The least common denominator is 2. Step 4: Multiplying the lcd by each reciprocal we get, 4, 2 and 4. Step 5: By writing them in parenthesis we get (4 2 4) Therefore the Miller indices of the given plane is (4 2 4) or (2 1 2). 25-Mar-17

**Miller Indices Problem # 2**

Calculate the miller indices for the plane with intercepts 2a, - 3b and 4c the along the crystallographic axes. The intercepts are 2, - 3 and 4 Step 1: The intercepts are 2, -3 and 4 along the 3 axes Step 2: The reciprocals are 1/2, -1/3, 1/4 Step 3: The least common denominator is 12. Multiplying each reciprocal by lcd, we get and 3 Step 4: Hence the Miller indices for the plane is 25-Mar-17

**Electrical & Thermal Conduction**

Electrical conduction: Motion of charges (conduction electrons) in a material under the influence of an applied electric field Thermal conduction: Conduction of thermal energy from higher to lower temperature regions in a material Thermal conduction involves carrying of energy by conduction electrons. Good electrical conductors are also good thermal conductors! 25-Mar-17
